It's too cold for me now to go swimming, but the pool is still open until October 16th, since the dogs are no wimps, when it comes to cold water. They still enjoy swimming, when the sun is shining during the day, and I open up the gate to the stairs. Denny has definitely learned to jump in, whenever he's hot, from the side, but still only from HIS certain spot.
Happy IS his name, if you know what I mean.
Wet, and happy, and tired.
It's not often you can see Denny moving at a fast pace like this.
And Maggie is like a Chipmunk on caffeine. She's always on the move.
Some time ago I bought myself this yarn bowl. Used it every day from the day I've got it, but about a month ago, I picked it up to move from the deck where I've been happily knitting, inside the house, when it broke in my hand, and cut my left pointy finger in the process. I was sad, and angry at the same time, since this bowl didn't last long. I love to use a yarn bowl, it's really handy.
So, after seeing a lovely one made from wood, I went and got myself this beauty.
I stuffed some fiber in it, so it wouldn't look so bare, but it's already in use now, holding my yarn for a cowl I'm knitting.
It was a pleasure to deal with Tim of Twisted Timber Woodturning. The bowl is worked beautifully, and hopefully will last a lot longer then the first one.
And I did say this is a random post, because really, I have to show you these:
They are called "Bora Bora Fire Balls", the recipe is from the book Well Fed. I've tried many recipes from this book, they are ALL wonderful. They are a combination of savory and sweet. Made with ground pork, and crushed pineapples and rolled in toasted, shredded coconut. The fire comes from Cayenne pepper, and Jalapenos, used in the meat, the shredded coconut mixture, and in the sauce too.
I made these with my daughter, who gets me to try new recipes on her weekly visits. If it were just me, I would cook the same thing over and over, not wanting to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. But it's worth it, those balls were delicious, especially with the "sunshine sauce" also from this book.
Alright, that's it for today!
